Brittany at My Life Herding Cats sent me these questions. It’s hard to imagine anyone really cares about my answers, but since Brittany asked—and I really like Brittany—I’ll answer.
If you could go back in time and relive one moment what would it be?I was standing on the ramparts of a medieval castle, looking out over acres and acres of wild Scottish countryside. My husband and I were exploring a remote and derelict tower. At that moment, Larry was off somewhere and I was alone. I imagined that if I was a queen, what sort of ruler would I be? Suddenly, it occurred to me that I was a queen, the ruler of my own life. It was an incredible life changing experience when I realized that I had total control and power over my days and years.
I don’t think I needed to be in Scotland for such an epiphany, but the beauty and peace certainly added to the moment.
If you could go back in time and change one thing what would it be?I would redo high school. More studies, music and writing, less boys.
What movie/TV character do you most resemble in personality?I’ve been told I remind people of Helen Hunt and Julie Andrews. But, I do not drink (Helen in Pay it Forward) nor do I burst into song (Julie in The Sound of Music.) Okay… sometimes I’ll burst into song, but I’d never wear a dirndl.
If you could push one person off a cliff, who would it be?Really—just one? This question is much too hard.
Why do you blog?That’s easy. I blog because I have stuff to say.
And now I have to pass my questions onto three people:
